MACC’s products can reduce your company’s pain at the pump
MACC wants your company to be as efficient (and profitable!) as possible. With gas prices remaining high, we want to pass on several efficiency boosting ideas to reduce your company’s pain at the pump and boost its bottom line by lowering the number of miles your vehicles need to travel. As an added bonus, if implemented, these ideas deliver the opportunity for improved customer service.
Both Customer Master and Accounting Master are accessible via MACC Mobile. For technicians in the field, this integration means service orders, trouble tickets, plant data, their schedule, and more are available using any device with internet access…such as smart phones or tablets. Having this direct link back to Customer Master reduces trips back to the office for paperwork or information.
MACC Mobile’s integration with Accounting Master can also reduce miles traveled as technicians can store and effectively inventory customer premise equipment in their vehicles. This inventory capability reduces trips back to the office or warehouse while maintaining control of the inventory items within Accounting Master.
Map-It instantly identifies locations where a technician is needed as Trouble Tickets, Service Orders, or Sales Leads are created in Customer Master. With tickets clearly marked on a highly-detailed map, managers and dispatchers can direct technicians to nearby customer locations where work is required. Dispatching your team based on their location not only lowers fuel expense, but it reduces response times which can lead to happier customers.
AutoPilot messages are branded, mobile friendly e-mails sent directly from Customer Master. While there are a wide variety of message options, the delinquent notice and appointment reminder e-mails could both reduce fuel usage. MACC clients have successfully used AutoPilot delinquent notices to reduce the number of disconnections they need to make each month…which in some instances can cut down on truck rolls associated with the disconnection. For the appointment reminders, these automated messages reduce the odds of customers forgetting they have an appointment with a technician.
Time Management System (TMS)
TMS enables your team to complete their time entry for payroll electronically and eliminates the need for a trip to the office to “punch-in” or out.
